Pumpkin seeds - they may be small, but they're mighty!

These nutritional powerhouses pack a huge fibre, protein, healthy fats, vitamin B, vitamin E, maganese, magnesium, copper and zinc punch.

And if that wasn't enough to get excited about, these easy to digest seeds also provide an excellent source of tryptophan, an amino acid that aids in the production of serotonin - a mood-regulating neurotransmitter - meaning they are a feel-good-food essential.

Snack of a handful during the day or sprinkle over your breakfast or a salad and reap all they have to offer!

I add a variety of seeds to my morning oatmeal porridge; pumpkin seeds are one of my favourites.
Many casserole recipes add bread crumbs for "crunch". They might add crunch but flavour and nutrition? Not so much. Add pumpkin seeds at the table.
I also like to use them in the ricotta layer of vegetarian lasagna.
Great ideas! Pumpkin seeds on porridge are certainly a match made in heaven!
